Toast Meets World and Finn are Engaged!

It’s official – Toast Meets World and Finn are FINALLY engaged! And it’s about time, too. It seems like they’ve been together forever. From gala hopping to raising awareness for The Humane Society, this power duo has made the rounds as NYC’s hottest IT couple. They started out as friends in the same social circle, but their schedules never lined up. Even still, Finn was determined to win over Toast’s affection. When asked for comment Finn said, “the heart knows what the heart wants and mine is forever set on Toast.” Awww, how sweet!

But one of the first steps you should take as a newly engaged couple is to start the registry. Once the news hits social media, loved ones, family and friends all want to share in your celebration and start buying you gifts. So why not make sure the gifts …

We teamed up with photographer Alisha Siegel for some Engagement Photoshoot Pro Tips. Whether it’s the day of the proposal or you have a little more time to prepare, here’s a rundown of everything you and your partner should consider for your photoshoot.
